Package        : bind9
Version        : 1:9.10.3.dfsg.P4-12.3+deb9u10
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-5740 CVE-2021-25219
Debian Bug     : 905743 


    Kishore Kumar Kothapalli discovered that the lame server cache in BIND,
    a DNS server implementation, can be abused by an attacker to
    significantly degrade resolver performance, resulting in denial of
    service (large delays for responses for client queries and DNS timeouts
    on client hosts).


    "deny-answer-aliases" is a little-used feature intended to help recursive
     server operators protect end users against DNS rebinding attacks, a
     potential method of circumventing the security model used by client
     browsers. However, a defect in this feature makes it easy, when the
     feature is in use, to experience an assertion failure in name.c.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your bind9 packages.
